Why does the NC school bus surplus site have to be...

So dang ol hard to use?
http://ncschoolbussales.dpi.state.nc.us/

Why would I want to search ONLY by county? Instead of say, miles, or make of bus. Like I would have some kind of preference for the county it came from!

Has anyone successfully used this site?

How big is a county in NJ? In northern Minnesota it wouldn't be a bad way to do things. Than again, the county I'm originally from is 4.5 times the size of Rhode Island...

And yet, RI has five counties.

(If you're curious: Providence, Kent, Washington, Bristol, Newport.)

Not New Jersey, North Carolina!

NC has a LOT of counties.

Complain to your congressman they made the states on the east side too small.

That would require him to be sober! Near as I can tell, he hasn't been lately.

Actually. they chopped the colonies up. An old map I saw from the 1600s show the NY/PA border going along the Delaware River to 42 North, then going west to the Pacific Ocean. That means Oregon used to be in NY, and Northern Cali was in PA. I don't remember the whole map, but think all the colonies outside of New England had borders that extended straight to the Pacific coastline.

Imagine how many NC counties there would be to search today, if it still included parts of TN, AR , OK, TX, NM, AZ, and CA !

This also meant that the future site of Jack Trice Stadium was in NY. It lies only one mile north of PA border.
